  • Title: BPA: The British Pig Association
    Descriptive info: T.. he British Pig Association.. The British Pig Association was founded in 1884.. The Association is the official breed society and maintains the Herd Books for the following breeds:.. Berkshire.. ,.. British Landrace.. British Saddleback.. Duroc.. Gloucestershire Old Spots.. , Hampshire,.. Large Black.. Large White.. , Mangalitza,.. Middle White.. , Oxford Sandy Black,.. Pietrain.. Tamworth.. and Welsh.. The majority of our traditional native breeds have less than 500 sows, which puts them at risk of extinction.. One of the most important tasks of the Association is to register the birth of all pedigree litters of pigs so that we can maintain and hopefully increase the number of registered breeding pigs in each of these breeds.. Our target must be to lift numbers beyond the 1000 sow level to ensure the safety and survival of our unique genetic heritage.. The chain of pedigree registration goes right back to 1884.. Piglets born to pedigree parents must  ...   pigs for meat.. There are significant premiums available for pedigree pork.. Pedigree registration allows you to sell breeding stock for higher prices and the Association organises an Annual Pedigree Auction Sale.. The BPA also represents the interests of pedigree breeders to government and tries to prevent the introduction of legislation that would damage your breed or your livelihood.. Pedigree pigs can also be entered into agricultural shows.. Showing pigs is great fun for all the family and is a fantastic shop window for the public to see our native breeds and to raise awareness of the need for conservation.. Membership starts from as little as £25 and you will be helping to preserve our national heritage of pig breeds.. In This Section.. Ø.. History of the British Pig Association..

    Descriptive info: Breed Surveys.. Welcome to the BPA on-line survey.. The 2013 BPA Bloodline Survey will close on Thursday 14th November.. To log on to your survey, click here.. Some frequently asked questions about the survey.. Q.. Some of my registered pigs do not appear on my survey.. A.. Please use the on-line herdbook to check that these pigs are alive and if not bred by you that they have been transferred into your name by the previous owner.. If they are showing as dead please inform the BPA and they can be resurrected.. If they have not been transferred to you they will need a transfer form.. Please inform the BPA in writing or by e-mail with proof of ownership.. I have more than one breed.. Can I complete all the surveys at once?.. Sorry the survey works breed by breed so if you have three breeds you must select each one individually and complete three surveys.. I have an old sow that is retired.. Should I include her in the survey.. No.. The Bloodline survey aims to establish the breeding population so it should not include pigs that are  ...   of the UK National Action Plan for Farm Animal Genetic Resources are Inventory, Monitoring and Conservation.. The first step is for us to establish an accurate inventory and then monitor the progress of the breed.. We have invested in new computer technology to improve the efficiency and accuracy of this process.. It is important that we know the size of the population but we also have to know how many pigs there are in each line within the breed.. This information can then be used to develop conservation breeding programmes.. It is no use identifying the five most important boars in a breed to go into the semen freezing programme if four of them are already dead.. We need your help to keep our database accurate and up to date so that it can be used for the maximum benefit of the breed.. One of Breed Surveyors will be contacting you over the next few weeks to see if you need any help to complete the survey.. Please remember that our surveyors are volunteers who give up their time to help with this conservation project.. The British Pig Association..

[back to list of traditional breeds].. [Berkshire Breeders Club].. Breed History.. Cromwell's troops when quartered in Reading, made reference to a locally bred pig renowned for its size and the quality of its bacon and ham.. This turned out to be one of the earliest records of the Berkshire breed.. These pigs were larger and coarser than today’s Berkshire.. Their colour varied from black to sandy red; they were also sometimes spotted and had variable white patches.. However, the breed was influenced by the introduction of Chinese and Siamese blood, which resulted in the development of the Berkshire we are familiar with today.. This is a smaller animal, black in colour, with prick ears, white socks, white tip to tail and flash on face.. Important strides in breed improvement took place between 1820 and 1830, much of which is attributed to Lord Barrington.. During the 19th century the breed became very popular, enjoying patronage from the aristocracy, including Queen Victoria.. Its  ...   breeds, the Berkshire suffered a serious decline in popularity following World War II when the demand for leaner bacon from white-skinned pigs increased and then in the 1960s with the development of breeding companies that favoured white breeds.. However, due to a few loyal stalwarts, the Berkshire survived.. Today’s increasing interest in traditional meat produced extensively has renewed interest in the breed.. Although it is a coloured breed, the meat dresses out white and, as this is an early-finishing breed, an ideal carcase weighs between 36kg and 45kg.. A number of breeders have developed their own specialised markets for Berkshire pig meat and Berkshire breeding stock are also in demand overseas – especially in Japan – where the breed is very popular and is marketed as Black Pork at a premium price.. Japanese buyers still consider Berkshires from Britain to have the best taste and flavour.. There have been six boars imported over the past fifty years from Australia and New Zealand.. Semen has also been sourced from USA.. These importations of new blood - all descended from the original English Berkshire – as well as grading up three female lines has helped broaden the breed’s genetic base.. Today, there are six male and nine female bloodlines available to breeders..
